DVD player tray will not open

Hello,

My DVD player tray will not open. I have consulted the hard-copy manual and it does not provide any useful troubleshooting information or anywhere within the manual. Here are the DVD player details:

Make: Sonic Blue, Go-Video
Model DVR4200

Thank you for your consideration, and I look forward to your reply.

    There is no sound which indicates it might be "jammed" and there is certainly nothing in front of the device preventing the tray from opening. Is there any trend of this DVD player's tray malfunctioning?

    I have a GO VIDEO VCR/DVD player and it won't open either. Don't know why.

    I also have a dual VCR player - the tray on the right which houses the old type format (not the C) opens but the left which houses CD's does not open

Maybe this will help someone look in the right direction. A friend gave me a KISS DP-1000 with the same problem: The TV showed the 'Eject' graphic, and nothing happened. There is no little hole that you can poke a paperclip in, like on a PC. I opened the player, and still could not find anything. Then I googled the model of the actual tray mechanism (DSL-710A). The datasheet said that it did have an 'emergency eject' machanism, operated by a Philips screw at the bottom of the tray. There are no holes at the bottom of the DP-1000, only a dimple that dead-ends. I broke through the bottom of the dimple with a small, flat, screwdriver, then enlarged the hole. I felt around with a medium Philips and it fitted into something. I twisted gently, and the tray popped out. Why KISS covered the 'emergency eject' screw is anybody's guess, but I am not buying any of their products.

DutchDouwe is correct, On the bottom of the actual tray mechanism (DSL-710A), there is a white plastic phillips-head slot that when turned clockwise will release the drive tray. However, I do not recommend "punching" through the case as you may damage the sensitive circuit boards inside. Instead, unplug the device from the wall and simply remove the screws on the case. Once inside, remove the screws holding the CD-ROM (yes, it is a CD-ROM and can be plugged into a computer using the IDE interface and used as such) to the case and simply turn it over. Locate the white plastic phillips-head slot and turn it clockwise with a screw driver.

Usually when the tray gets stuck it means it was jamed by something or something is in the way for it to open. Hope this helps. =)

Disc tray cannot be opened


Hi, The unit is in initialization/reset mode immediately after powerup. It does a self diagnostic sequence. When a fault is detected, it actually locks up till the fault is removed/repaired. A couple of things you can do: 1. Unplug the unit from the mains for a couple of hours; 2. Check your manual if there is a hard/full reset sequence/button and perform it; 3. Remove the topcover and inspect the loading tray. There is a possibility that a CD is stuck, lodged or skewed inside; 4. There is also a possibility that the loading mechanism is stuck, defective belt/gear; 5. if the unit is still under warranty, require service or replacement; or 6. if no longer under warranty, seek the services of a qualified professional. Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turn up or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.

The DVD loader will not open. The DVD player has never been used.


Hello,

There seem to be a prolem with the mechanism that opens and closes the player.

Probably the player hit something really hard.

To fix this, all you have to do is to get the appropriate screwdriver, unscrew the cover of the player, take a close look at the mechanism that controls the disc tray and you will discover the fault.

Adjust the rubber and sit the tray properly, if you see any damage on the mechanism, all you have to do is change the mechanism.

Try to open it before you cover it back.

Take care

Dvd player will not open disc, display lock


Sound like it either has one or two problems, the door is stuck and or the door eject motor has failed. Look in the front to the player for a small paperclip like hole, and use a paper clip to manual eject the and engage the loading mechanism usually located under the door for most cases. Check you manuals troubleshooting section for manually ejecting a CD..

Please leave comment.

Does not recognise either new disc or pre recorded disc dvd or cd


G'Day!

Unfortunately, what you're describing is a repair issue. You won't be able to address the problem with troubleshooting. There is a part inside the player that needs to be replaced. If you're under warranty, this will cost you nothing. If you're not under warranty the cost will likely be a minimum of $200 parts and labor. However, be warned that the cost could be considerably higher.

What types of DVD can be played on the durabrand DVD player like memorex. sony.-r, or +r


G'Day!

It depends on the model of player you have. For example, COBY has older models that won't play anything other than commercial DVDs. However, most new DVD players, and by new I mean ones that are no more than 12 months old, can play DVD +R and -R. To find this information, you need to consult the manual or contact the manufacturer about your specific model.

  1. Ensure the child lock feature is disabled.
  2. IMPORTANT: If necessary, consult the instruction manual for specific steps about how to disable the child lock feature.
  3. Attempt to open the disc tray.
  4. If the issue is not resolved, turn off the DVD player.
  5. Unplug the power cord from the electrical outlet for 30 seconds.
  6. Plug the power cord back into the electrical outlet.
  7. Attempt to open the disc tray.
  8. If the disc tray still does not open, simultaneously press the POWER+STOP+EJECT buttons; this will sometimes cause the disc tray to open.
If the issue is still unresolved, service may be required. The Sony® eService Web site at http://eservice.sony.com/ can assist you in obtaining service from a Sony Service Center or locating a Sony Authorized Servicer.

Eject tray belt broke


Opening the DVD player tray is not as hard as you would think.

1. Remove three black screws holding the outer cover on the unit (located on rear of unit)

2. Carefully remove front panel trim by gently prying six clips (3 on top, 3 on bottom) away from unit and pulling panel away from unit.

3. Locate opening at the front of the DVD player that houses a larger white gear.

4. Using a finger, gently move gear until DVD tray begins to move outward.

5. Continue until DVD is fully ejected.

6. Try plugging the unit back into AC outlet and attempt to Open/Close the tray using the provided button on the Front Panel Circuit Board.

7. Reverse steps above to put unit back together.
